Isambarde, a young group consisting of Chris Green (vocals, guitar), Jude Rees (oboe, vocals) and Emily Sanders (vocals, fiddle), is playing at the Bothy Folk Club this Sunday. I have seen this group before several times and can thoroughly recommend them, but don't just take my word for it; here's what Vin Garbutt had to say: "Isambarde are a really good young band. They’re good to listen to, good to look at and it’s very obvious that they enjoy performing.”
Here is an example of what Isambarde sounds like.
It's happening at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport on Sunday at 8.00 p.m. Thwaites real ale.
Also this week in Southport is the bi-monthly singaround at the Mason's in Anchor Street, which is just behind the main post office on Lord Street. That's tomorrow (Wednesday) night from around 8.30 p.m. Robinson's beers.
